Vendor Advocacy Melbourne

Selling property can be a stressful, confusing and time consuming process. Propositions need to be carefully pondered and decisions, wisely made. Poor representation and bad advice can end up costing thousands, therefore impacting your capital gains. The best way to navigate through the journey is to select a vendor’s advocate to represent you, and your investments’ best interests.

The concept of a vendor’s advocate is a relatively new one on Australian soil. Comparatively, they have been around for decades in the US. Their counterparts, the buyer’s advocate, have been in Australia for around 15 years. Each have a specific role to play in property transactions, but which one do you need on your team?

What Do Vendor Advocates Do?

Vendor’s advocates are independent of the real estate agent in that they don’t sell property themselves. They offer:

  • Written appraisals of the property, including comparative local sales and other listings on the market to form an accurate market price range.
  • Advice on preparing the property for sale. 
  • Interview & hire local and reputable real estates agents.
  • Structure cost effective advertising campaigns.
  • Recommend the best methods for selling the property (auction, private treaty or tender). 
  • Examining and negotiate buyers offers. 
  • Assisting with final settlement.

Selecting a selling real estate agent

Marketing campaign

We are experts at marketing, and utilize all our tools to ensure that your property is seen by the masses. We put the listing online, and market it on major real estate websites. By liaising with the real estate agent, we make sure all our marketing goals and being met, and we are on track to sell the property within the pre-arranged time frame.

The marketing campaign is essential in reaching a larger demographic of potential buyers. Buyers use a variety of advertising mediums in their property search. The selected agent will ideally use a broad range of outlets to market your property. Mr. Ribarsky says, “Advertising has changed over the last few years. Where we used to see lots of sign boards, and advertising in local newspapers, we have now seen the rise in the Internet and popular real estate websites as a common search tool. We have access to advertising on these lucrative sites, and believe that any agent selected must advertise via the Internet as well as through traditional methods, so as to not miss any audience.”

Tying up ends

We are here to support you, right through to the settlement. We can organize removalist quotes, cleaning, and even arrange for the power to be disconnected.


Our fees are included in the selling agents fees. There is no extra cost to you, at all.
